Congressman Don Beyer, the Ranking Member on the House Science Subcommittee for Oversight, strongly condemned the Committee’s issuance of subpoenas to private server companies related to Sec. Clinton’s email server.

“This is a wasteful use of taxpayer dollars by Chairman Smith and the Science Committee Republicans for blatantly partisan purposes,” said Rep. Beyer. “The House Science Committee must focus on its role promoting science and ensuring that America is the global leader in research and development, rather than scoring cheap political points with the umpteenth investigation of this issue.”

Sec. Clinton’s servers have already been thoroughly investigated by the House Benghazi Committee, which expended millions of taxpayer dollars on an inquiry which revealed no evidence of illegal activity.
